Engagement opportunities BIG and SMALL
Big Brothers Big Sisters collaborates with hundreds of companies and organizations throughout our service area to develop fun and effective employee engagement opportunities. There are countless studies that validate that employee service and volunteer initiatives generate great outcomes and benefits to the company/organization in employee satisfaction, productivity, and teamwork.
We would love the opportunity to work with your company or organization to create an engagement opportunity that meets your goals and objectives.
A few examples of employee engagement projects we have facilitated include:
- A company toy, book and craft drive to support the Match Activity Boxes used by our school-based matches in over 32 partner schools.
- Landscaping, cleanup and paint day projects at one of our three mentoring centers.
